Re: trailer or hitch rack

I had the rack on my 2007 Goldwing and found that I carried too much weight on the platform. It was tough on the rear tire especially riding two up. On my 2013 Goldwing I went with a Kompact Kamp Cargo trailer and find that is is easier on the bike for weight and handles very well. Usually do not kn...

Re: footwear

I too have been wearing the Bilt Pro Tourer boots for about a year like RockportDave. Been through several rain storms with some big puddles and came home with dry feet. I like the dual zippers because I have a high arch and other higher boots are difficult to get my feet into. I also did not want t...

Re: Riding across I-90

Are you sure you were riding on roads in Pennsylvania? Road surface looks too good! Good video.

Re: Third Annual GoldwingDocs Gathering - Sep 11-15, 2019

Looking forward to seeing you all in September. Confirmed my reservations this evening. Good deal on the room, Thanks Brian. I have stayed there several times and it has always been good. They cater to motorcyclists. Now if we can get some warm weather to get these bike wheels turning without having...

Re: Summer Ride Hancock MD/VA Area

Hi Brian,
I will keep that in mind. Either way I will put the dates on my summer ride schedule. Lots of great riding in WV. For the Friday ride are you going to the Flight 93 memorial? Great roads on the way out to Shenksville.

Re: Summer Ride Hancock MD/VA Area

Hi Brian, This event is close by my home location. I get to Hancock often as it is a good starting point for rides into WV, western MD, and south central PA. I will keep checking back to see what your ride plans are, and I will try to schedule riding with your group at least for Saturday. Ride safe,...

Re: Parking

I was thinking about this parking brake question because of a situation I had earlier this year. I ended up at this topic and I do see it is over a year old but still relevant. I did some searching for a 'parking brake' for a Goldwing GL1800 prior to the new 2018 models. What I found was that in som...

Re: It is never to early to plan: 2019 GoldwingDocs Gathering

Brian, First week of October, 10 of us stayed at the Maggie Valley Inn as our launching site for our rides in the NC/TN area. While I admit it is not 5 star lodging, it was clean and convenient, and they treated us great. The restaurant food was good, the Ti-Ki bar was a nightly gathering spot for n...

Brian,
Make sure to check out the Maggie Valley Inn/Convention Center. Rooms are comfortable and great Tiki bar for after ride. Restaurant in the hotel, too.

Re: It is never to early to plan: 2019 GoldwingDocs Gathering

Brian, Al, Jim,
Also take a look at Rt 421, The Snake, near Mountain City NC, right across the TN/NC border. Not too far from the Little Switzerland area you all are considering. Looks like about 70 miles with some great roads to get there.

Re: It is never to early to plan: 2019 GoldwingDocs Gathering

Brian, Just wanted to throw out a couple of ideas for rides in the NC/TN area you are looking at for the 2019 Gathering. Two weeks ago I was road captain for 9 others in my riding group that rode Cherohala Skyway, Tail of the Dragon, and the Moonshiner 28 among other back and connecting roads. All g...

I agree with Jim, Great videos! Good job! And we did have fun riding these roads even though sometimes we got off course.

Re: 2nd Annual Gathering 9-13-16/2018 - Hotel Info

Just a note to say thanks for a good time and getting to meet all of you. Great rides, good planning, and always fun to have an unexpected adventure. Those 'Wings can off-road!! Someone asked about the front turn signals on my Goldwing so I thought I would add the link here: http://www.socalmotogear...

Blue Thunder, add me to the list of those attending the Gathering. Booked room over this weekend. It will be a pleasure to meet all attending. I have some great roads to travel to get there from PA, and looking forward to riding the roads in the Mineral Wells area.

Re: 2nd Annual GoldwingDocs Gathering - Sep 13-16, 2018

Made my hotel reservation this evening. Looking forward to meeting and riding with you all. WV has some great roads. I have been reading this forum for several years but never posted anything. Some really great information and how-tos on here. Thanks for all the information. See you all in a few days.
